By Regina Scott
Set back in a time when girls were the sole property of men, a group of four girls tries to change that. Called “La Petite Four”, the feisty group leader is named Emily… and she is engaged to a horrid fellow. Her three friends, Priscilla, Ariadne, and Daphne, will do anything to help Emily, and they make it their goal to see Emily to her coming out Ball. With clever plot twists, spying, and debonair courtiers, this book will keep you reading until the end!
Regina Scott proves her knowledge of this time period in this piece. Creatively written, this book didn’t end the way I thought it would, which gave it many plot twists. Although the girls acted in ways I am quite positive girls of their time would have never acted, it was still a fun read. The characters were a little unreal at times, but that is what made it fun. Definitely falling under the category “beach read”, I would recommend this book for the girls waiting for the next Luxe book to come out… this will satisfy your hunger for the wait.
